Council Members

Louise AppletonĀ 


I have been a resident of Brailes for 20 years, currently living in Cow Lane and my three boys all went to Brailes Primary school. I have always involved myself in the village, I was a school Governor for a while and spent over 10 years running a drama club for young people in the village, putting on at least one play a year and am still directing the bi-annual Panto… which keeps me laughing.

I have been a Councillor for four and a half years now and as part of this helped bring the current Neighbourhood plan into being. I am passionate that Brailes and Winderton should remain picturesque villages, but also grow in a sustainable way, enabling younger people and families to live here, keeping our amenities (shops, school, clubs) open and thriving.

As a Councillor, I am also the PC representative on the village hall committee and the Sustainable Brailes group, the latter has a community allotment, has helped to plant over 100 trees in Brailes and introduced a thermal camera to look at heat loss in buildings (which any villager can borrow).
